The places we are born, grow, live, work, and age were not created equitably for all.

Women of color tend to live in places with less access to opportunity—safe places to walk and play, healthy food, quality education, public transportation, employment opportunities, and preventive health care. This hinders educational attainment, income, and physical and mental health.

Fortunately, women are increasingly standing up to the historical social, environmental, and political issues that spur poor health.

To celebrate Women’s History Month, let’s use #SaludTues on March 13, 2018, to tweet about awesome women who have and continue to build a culture of health for Latino and all families in the places they live.
